What is a Contractor Team Arrangement (CTA) under GSA IT Schedule 70?

A Contract Teaming Arrangement (CTA) is an arrangement between two or more GSA Schedule contracts to work together to meet an agency's requirements. The CTA allows the contractor to meet the government agency needs by providing a total solution that combines the supplies and/or services from the team members' separate GSA Schedule contracts. It permits contractors to complement each other's capabilities to compete for orders for which they may not independently qualify. A customer benefits from a CTA by buying a solution rather than making separate buys from various contractors. Learn more about Contractor Team Arrangements.

<p>As stated above, a CTA is an arrangement between two or more GSA Schedule contracts to work together to meet an agency&#39;s requirements. However, is it possible for a non MAS 70 vendor (small) could use another small company&#39;s contract Schedule 70 to bid on a project as the prime. Of course, so long that there is an agreement between the non MAS 70 vendor and the MAS 70 vendor? If this is possible, what are the required documents to be submitted with the quote?</p>

<p>I understand a CTA, but how does an authorized agent work?&nbsp; The agent does not have to have a GSA Schedule?&nbsp;</p>
